A letter from Dr. JR Ong thanking UPMASA for our project “Laptops for Doctors”

Good day!
I am Dr. JR Ong, UP College of Medicine Class  2012, and one of the 16 recipients of the UPMASA Laptop to the Barrios c/o  UPMASA-Delaware and UPMASA Blackberry Project c/o UPMASA Michigan chapter, both coursed through the UP National Telehealth Center c/o Dr. Marcelo.
In behalf of the 16 UP Medicine Doctors to the Barrios, let me thank you for the laptops and  phone lines you donated to the municipalities that we serve. Most of the rural health units where we are deployed are unable to acquire these gadgets, which turned out to be very useful in communicating with our fellow doctors and in managing our respective health data.
UPMASA Blackberries
As our way of expressing our gratitude, I am sending you these two photos (attached in this email), showing us, the 16 UP Doctors to the Barrios, with the laptops and the Blackberry Phones you donated. The photos were  taken last May 11, during the last day of our two-week semiannual CME in Tagaytay. I am also requesting you to allow me to post these photos in a UPCM alumni Facebook group page.

  1. Thank you, Freddy, Hermie, and your team. It is gettting better and better.
    I just noted that UPMASA is named UPMedical Alumni Association.
    Just tweak it a bit to its correct full name please. It is UP Medical Alumni Society in America ( Delaware Valley Chapter)

    Many thanks!
    Arelyne and Ben Ramos


  2. Here is to wish you Arlene, officers and members of UPMASA, a successful fund-raiser event for your worthwhile projects through your sponsorship of the The Brothers in Harmony Concert this coming November. Your compassion and commitment to help others are very commendable. God bless
